Arenal Nayara Hotel & Gardens
Simply put, Arenal is an outdoor paradise. There are rainforests and rivers, lakes and lagoons, waterfalls, mountains, and an enormous volcano. Hikes through the Arenal Volcano National Park or walks along the suspension bridges bring travelers eye-to-eye with some of the environmental rarities that the area is known for. Canopy and canyoneering tours are exciting, as are rafting trips down the slow-moving Peñas Blancas River.
Arenal Nayara is a true oasis. Voted one of Central and South American’s most romantic getaways, this hotel is opulent and unceasingly beautiful. The property is surrounded by rainforest and set on a hilltop overlooking the lush Arenal valley. The Arenal Volcano is in constant view, and vibrant flowers line footpaths and patios, dining areas and swimming pools.
The bungalows at Arenal Nayara are the epitome of comfort. Spacious and wooden, these bungalows have beds with 300 count linen sheets, large private bathrooms, and volcano view balconies. The balconies are equipped with a private Jacuzzi, providing guests with an ideal place to relax and soak up the tranquility of Costa Rica’s outdoors. Just beyond the balcony is a private garden.
